Misty Monday XXI

Todays Misty Monday is for James Blake
James Blake is an English electronic music producer and singer-songwriter from London. His eponymous debut album was released in the United Kingdom on 7 February 2011 for which he was nominated for the Mercury Music Prize in 2011. He covered the Feist song "Limit to your love" in his particularly way, slow piano, nice voice often reshaped with vocoders, electronic drums and lots of space in the mix. He is also known as "Harmonimix" particularly when releasing mixes. He has made a new album called "Overgrown" and on that album is a perfect Misty Mondaysong called "Retrograde". Let's take a look to the beautiful video and listen to this amazing song. I really like the synths climbing up to the right tone, it's the first single from his new album "Overgrown" due to release the 8th of april. And then there's his collaboration with Brian Eno for the song "Digital Lion" It's a worthy artist for our 100th post on møpkemuziek. Here are some grooveshark links to some older work like "The Wilhelm Scream" The Wilhelm Scream by James Blake on Grooveshark

And here's Lindisfarne II

And we end with the short and strange cut-up song "Why Don't You Call Me?" which made me think a little of "Antony and the Johnsons" Why Don't You Call Me by James Blake on Grooveshark
